Place Cards to DIY for Your Winter Wedding
The place cards themselves can be super simple but how you present them can be really cool, crafty and, yes, yummy! See the imaginative ideas below.
Propping your cards up on treats like cookies, candies and chocolates is such a delightful way to welcome guests to their places. Darling gingerbread cookies (1), whether home-baked or store-bought, can have the names simply piped on each one. Chocolate truffles (6) can serve as “stands” for glittery star toppers with decorative paper tags and bells. Personalized marshmallows (7) make a yummy idea, too! So just think of the place card possibilities with holiday cupcakes, cake pops, candy canes, even drinks garnishes!
Wintertime accents that you can just pick up from your backyard or a forest trail are another wonderful option for DIY place card holders. Think twigs (2) tied together and trimmed with leaves and berries, pine cones (3) tipped with colored paint, or mini wood slices (4) giving a rustic touch to each place setting. So amazingly easy, yet so appealing!
Holiday ornaments – Of course, if you’d like to bring the Christmas spirit into your wedding, do so through your place cards as well. Check out tutorials like this one for DIY snow globes (5) that incorporate your guests’ names and make lovely wedding keepsakes, too! You can also write on colored Christmas balls, tie name tags to beribboned sleigh bells, or put scroll tags across mini wreaths.
